There are usually stores with large fish markets but I decided to have cod and picked up a pkg. It is the best cod. It’s got just the right size and thickness for each filler. The texture is perfect. I make it with the TJ’s Pablo and it comes out perfect Everytime.

These are the best cod filets you can buy for the price. They contain no sodium triphosphate, an additive that keeps fish moist so it can be frozen for longer periods and plumps up the fish-then you cook it and it shrinks 50%-not this cod…there is nearly no shrinkage at all. I like it well seasoned, breaded with panko and pan fried. It makes a great fish sandwich with some home made tartar sauce.
Unfortunately, we were going to make dinner tonight with a package of this fish, but when I opened the seal and took out the two pieces of fish… my eye immediately zeroed in on what appeared to be a worm about 1.5 inches long.There were other similar anomalies within one of the two pieces of fish… but the initial alarming ‘wormlike thing’ was not IN the fillet, but ON it.Pointy on the ends, it is slender and pinkish in color.
Even though I knew we were going to be cooking the fillets in a pan, I felt we shouldn’t risk it — parasites are not something to trifle with.
I’ve purchased this type of fish previously, and while it isn’t one of TJ’s most stellar frozen items (the cook needs to add the flavor), it has never had this look before.I want to be straightforward here… we do not know what the thing(s) could be, but it certainly looks like a worm.
I will let my local Trader Joe’s know.
I tried a package and WOW! This was one of the best pieces of cod I have ever eaten. I prepared it simply to better review the cod. Pan fried in a little butter. Added salt and pepper.The texture was perfect. The taste was amazing! I will enjoy this many times I’m sure and would feel very confident serving this to guests – possibly a little fancier!Another satisfied Trader Joe shopper – AGAIN!!
My wife and I love it. Defrosts easily. Solid texture. No shrinkage. Flour, egg, panko breading and pan fried. So easy. Great value.
